Quoth El Killer de la Salsa: Uno de los músicos mas respetados y virtuosos de los últimos tiempos en el mundo del Jazz y la música Afrocubana es sin duda alguna John Calloway, musico magnifico, Multi – Instrumentista la Flauta y la percusión son la parte esencial de este majestuoso trabajo que presenta en este 2016 titulado “Asere Ko” es fiel a su profundo amor por la música Cubana sin descuidar la sonoridad impresionante que desprende este educador musical, lo recordamos por su trabajo anterior en el que disfrutamos con “Velero Sin Timón” del álbum titulado “Diaspora” aunque por estos lados de Europa no ha resonado como debería (Este servidor es uno de los pocos que ha destinado espacio en su programacion) para este musico, ahora con “Asere Ko” se rodea de gente del calibre de Oscar Hernandez en el piano, Jesús Diaz en la Percusión o el mismísimo Edgardo Cambon ( Hablaremos en otro post de este musico) para esta obra maestra del que queremos desprender este valioso numero musical titulado “For The Love Of Money”
